"We sing in different dialects from across Africa - all of the African dialects you can think of, we probably have a song about it, or we know something about it, or we’re singing about it... There’s so many people that would be amazed to hear all Americans singing their dialect and their songs with articulation. It’s good to be able to connect in that way where people see that we were able to take the time to learn these languages. I think probably we’ve touched on at least ten or more areas of Africa, so I can speak a little Swahili and I’ve dealt with the Ibo tribe and the Yoruba tribe. We’ve definitely touched on a bit of everything, and that’s what makes me drawn to it."
